On photo Boatman of Amarapura in the Rowboat challenge (4 comments in total)

When I saw this photo in the submission stage, I just said to myself, "Myanmar - I have to get there some day." When I pick a single word for a challenge idea , I never know what I will see, but beauty like this, framed so well, makes hosting worthwhile. Anyway, congratulations on the win for this challenge!

On challenge A Still Life - crop the image to a square (2 comments in total)
In reply to:

pleytime: Noticed a couple of images not squared.

I have been debating removing a number of entries that do not meet a traditional meaning of 'still life". I left many in that don't fit that definition, but in future challenges I will define the meaning/requirement further. I did remove the non square photos. thank you for that reminder.

Buzz Lightyear: Metal sculpture (maybe polished brass?); about 4-5 meters high; installed in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Francisco. I took this picture from a overhanging balcony on the 6th floor.

Thanks for the info because I was about to ask the size. This is much larger than I guessed. (And it is one of my favorites in this challenge too)

On photo White-throated Sparrow in the Sparrow - Crop the photograph as a Square challenge (2 comments in total)

Ed I have to say, this is the "Host's pick". I love the background. It sets off the subtle coloring on the bird so nicely. And now I know what a White-Throated Sparrow looks like, should I see one. Congratulations on a beautiful entry as runner up.

Wow, that is a big engine and a lot to fill the frame with! There was such variety in the mix, I couldn't guess which would pull into 1st place. There are many that were worthy, including this one. Congratulations for the win!

On challenge The Bride - Requirement: crop photo to a SQUARE (13 comments in total)
In reply to:

barrym1966: 15 out of 38, even years after school I still manage to be average :)

Actually, yours was 15 out of 43 when it went thru the votes. A few withdrew afterwards. That's closer to the top 1/3 than top 1/2.

I thought your photo was lively and interesting.

In reply to:

JerryShots: I'm going out on a limb here and guessing you just don't bother with rules in general, right?

I mean - How many flowers is the right amount of flowers in a "Single Flower" contests..?
What causes this kind of thing, if I could ask?

This entry will be adjusted or switched to something more in line with a "single flower" . The entrant has been notified and given an option to find a solution that is more fitting.
